OAK HARBOR, Wash. - One of Washington's most scenic bridges is celebrating its 75th birthday.
The Deception Pass Bridge was built by Seattle-based Puget Construction Company back in 1935. The Department of Transportation inspects the two spans on a regular basis, and officials say they are still in great shape.
These days 15,000 vehicles pass over the two-part span every day. Two million people visit the nearby Deception Pass State Park every year.
The Deception Pass Park Foundation is holding a special party to celebrate the milestone on Saturday, July 31. The public is invited.
